Activating Data

If you have added a data bundle to your ‘Mobal World’ SIM card and you are not yet able to access cellular data, please ensure that you have completed the following steps:

– Enable the ‘Mobile / Cellular Data’ feature on your device

– Ensure that you have created an APN (Access Point Name) profile using the correct settings

– Enable the ‘Data Roaming’ feature on your device

If you have enabled the ‘Mobile / Cellular Data’ feature and the ‘Data Roaming’ feature on your device but you are unable to connect, please ensure that your APN (Access Point Name) profile settings match up with what is shown below:

…………………………………

Name: Mobal
APN: gamma

If you are not sure how to check your APN settings / how to create an APN profile (or how to enable the Mobile Data / Data Roaming feature on your device) however, please refer to the guides below for additional instructions.

Creating an APN

To begin creating a new APN profile, please access the ‘Apps’ menu on your device and then tap on the “Settings” icon as shown in the image below:

From the “Settings” menu, please tap on the option for “Connections” as shown below. Please note that on some devices, this option may be listed as “Network & Internet” instead or you may be able to skip to the next section of this guide.

From the next screen, please tap on the option for “Mobile Networks”:

You can then tap on the “Access Point Names” option as shown here:

Once you have reached the “Access Point Names” section, you will be able to see a list of the APN profiles that are currently installed on your device.

If the correct APN profile is not shown however, you will be required to create a new APN profile with the required settings.

You should be able to create a new APN profile by tapping on the “ADD” button at the top right. If this option is not visible however, you may need to tap on a plus symbol icon (+) or an options icon (which usually appears as three dots in a vertical line) as shown below:

A new window will then appear where you will be required to fill in the relevant sections with the correct profile settings. Any sections that are not listed in the APN profile settings shown below can be left blank / left unchanged.

Name: Mobal
APN: gamma

Once you have entered all of the required APN settings, you must then save the profile. You should be able to do this by tapping on the ‘Options’ icon (which is usually 3 dots in a vertical line) and then tapping on the “Save” button as shown here:

Now that you have saved your settings, you must also ensure that the correct APN is selected as the active profile.

After returning to the “Access Point Names” section, please ensure that the profile you have just created is selected (there will usually be a circle / dot to the left of the profile that is currently selected) as the active profile.

Your device should now be configured correctly but in order to access data, you will also need to enable the ‘Mobile / Cellular Data’ feature and the ‘Data Roaming’ feature on your device. For instructions on how to do this, please refer to the guides below.

Enabling Data

To enable cellular data access on your device, please access the ‘Apps’ menu and then tap on the “Settings” icon as shown in the image below:

From the “Settings” menu, please tap on the option for “Connections” as shown below. Please note that on some devices, this may be listed as “Network & Internet” or you may be able to skip to the next section of this guide.

On the next screen, please tap on the “Data Usage” option as shown here:

You should then see a “Mobile Data” (or “Cellular Data”) option with a slider button. To enable data, please tap on the slider button (or drag it to the right) to activate this feature.

Now that you have created your APN profile and enabled the cellular data feature, you will also need to enable the “Data Roaming” feature using the instructions shown below.

 

Enabling Data Roaming

To enable data roaming, please return to the “Settings” menu and then tap on the option for “Connections” once again:

On the next screen, please tap on the option for “Mobile Networks”:

You should then see a “Data Roaming” option with a slider button. To enable data roaming, please tap on the slider button (or drag it to the right) to activate this feature:

 

Now that you have created your APN profile and enabled the data / data roaming options, cellular data access should now be available!

Please note that if the instructions above do not apply for your handset (due to you using an older device or an older OS) however, you may need to refer the user guide / support information for your particular handset as we are only able to provide a generic guide for Android devices.
